The Scouting Report
After winning the AHL’s Calder Cup last season, the Admirals sit at 13–13–1–0 through 27 games so far this year, jostling with St. John’s and Wilkes-Barre for a healthy berth in the Eastern Conference standings. Currently one of the top 15 scorers in the league, center Peter Holland leads the roster with 11 goals and 16 assists through 27 games. Frederik Andersen and Igor Bobkov have split equal time in the net this season, protecting the goal as if it contained a baby balanced on a Jenga tower.
The Norfolk Admirals joined the AHL as an expansion team in the 2000–01 season. After qualifying for the playoffs nearly every season, the team’s historic 2011–12 campaign pushed them over the top and brought home their first Calder Cup. That year, the Admirals closed the season on a 28-game winning streak, the longest in the history of professional hockey since 1975, when brick walls were deemed ineligible to be goalies. Now an affiliate of the Anaheim Ducks, the Admirals still take to the ice at Norfolk Scope Arena and face off before crowds of up to 8,700 devout fans.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
